Monkey Escape

From house burglaries to lorry truck looting, monkey crimes have escalated on the streets of Jaipur. But with new monkey catcher recruits on the loose, these pesky primates must make a quick escape.

The city troop of rogue monkeys are smart – they’ve memorized catcher Dhanna Lal’s face and flee at the sound of his truck. And even though he doesn’t capture them on Tuesdays – a day devoted to Hanuman, the monkey god – Dhanna Lal is ready to teach his apprentices a hands-on course in outsmarting these street renegades.

Just a short distance away, Rani and her macaque troop scavenge for food and discover a home with an unlocked door. Will they find a feast awaiting them in the kitchen?

Out in the countryside, exile Zamir is becoming skilled at looting lorry trucks. But when he gets caught on the back of a moving truck, his cushy countryside lifestyle is on the line.

Tune into Rebel Monkeys all Sunday night on Nat Geo Wild.
